The safecontractor Charter Standards set down the benchmark against which the contractor is assessed.
Due to the vast variation in contractor work activities, size and nature, the Standards are deliberately non-prescriptive which allows the auditors to use their best judgment and experience as to the specific level of evidence required to demonstrate compliance.
What is covered?
The Standards cover core elements including health and safety policies, risk assessment and first aid, but also include specific requirements relating to the activity for which accreditation is being sought. For example, high risk activities such as asbestos removal have an additional 14 evidence requirements (including licenses and health surveillance).
How is it covered?
The overall performance and operation of the Audit Team is governed by the Professional Guidance Note (PGN) which outlines the overall aims of the audit process and other non-technical issues including file handling, call handling and customer service.
